Main Article Content


The purposes of this article are to provide a description of developing an approach: 1) for self development-based English learning using daily routines as the topic, and 2) for self development-based English learning practice to develop the capacity of the training participants. So far, English training is more concentrated on the mastery of English and how to teach it. Therefore, it is proposed to develop an approach focusing on learning English to optimize the development of oneself by implementing tasks given. The study of self development-based English learning was done through a comprehensive analysis on literature study towards a number of references relating to concept of training, selfdevelopment concept, daily habits, and theory of learning. The study towards concept of training reminds us that design and content of training must be adopted to the shifting era which trains the participants to develop thinking skills in order to solve the problems in their lives. Self-development concepts show that the practice of good values on daily basis will make the training participants develop their capacity. The study towards daily habits expose that people become what they do daily consciously or unconsciously. While the study towards learning theory shows that learning will be more beneficial if the training participants know the benefit of what they learn. Thus, it can be concluded, the study of self development-based English learning with the emphasis on putting powerful daily routines into practice can be used to develop the capacity of the training participants through powerful daily routines.
